9 Kitashirakawa Higashikubotacho, Sakyo Ward

Located in an old machiya (traditional wooden townhouse) and helmed by female chef Masayo Funakoshi, Kyoto’s Farmoon offers one of the most unique dining experiences in the city. The beautiful restaurant has an open kitchen and eating here feels more like dining in a private home, as patrons can watch Funakoshi at work as she crafts international takes on Japanese cuisine in the small dining room. An artist as well as a chef, Funakoshi made all of the ceramic tableware herself. Farmoon is open for dinner from Thursday through Sunday, and reservations must be requested far in advance (they are accepted on a case-by-case basis).
